What Is Cnc Machining Center

The machining center is developed from the CNC milling machine. The biggest difference from the CNC milling machine is that the machining center has the ability to automatically exchange machining tools. By installing tools for different purposes on the tool magazine, the machining tools on the spindle can be changed by the automatic tool changer in one clamping to realize multiple machining features.

The CNC machining center is a high-efficiency automated machine tool that is composed of mechanical equipment and a CNC system and is suitable for  complex cnc machining parts. CNC machining center is currently one of the most widely used CNC machine tools in the world. Its comprehensive processing ability is relatively strong. After the workpiece is clamped, it can complete more processing content. The processing accuracy is high. For batch workpieces with medium processing difficulty, its efficiency is 5-10 times that of ordinary equipment, especially it can complete Many processings that cannot be completed by ordinary equipment are more suitable for single-piece processing with more complex shapes and high precision requirements or for small and medium batches of multiple varieties. It concentrates the functions of milling, boring, drilling, tapping and cutting threads on one device, so that it has a variety of technological means. Machining centers are classified into horizontal and vertical machining centers according to their spatial positions during multi spindle machining. Classified according to process use: boring and milling machining center, compound machining center. According to the special classification of functions, there are: single workbench, double workbench and multi-workbench machining center. Machining centers with single-axis, dual-axis, three-axis and interchangeable headstocks, etc.

Can Cnc Machining Center Improve Labor Productivity?

The CNC machining center does not need manual tool control and has a high degree of automation. The benefits are obvious.

  • ⑴ Reduced requirements for operators:
    A senior worker of a general machine tool cannot be trained in a short time, and a CNC worker who does not need programming has a very short training time (for example, a CNC lathe worker needs one week, and he will write simple processing programs). In addition, the parts processed by CNC workers on CNC machine tools have higher precision than those processed by ordinary workers on traditional machine tools, and it takes less time.
  • ⑵Reduce the labor intensity of workers: CNC workers are excluded from the processing most of the time during the processing, which is very labor-saving.
  • ⑶ Stable product quality: The processing automation of CNC machine tools eliminates the fatigue, carelessness, estimation and other human errors of ordinary machine tools, and improves the consistency of products.
  • ⑷ High cnc machining efficiency: The automatic tool change of CNC machine tools makes the processing process compact and improves labor productivity.
